Iron Eagle 3: Aces is the 1992 second chapter in the popular smash action franchise. Chappy Sinclair (Lou Gossett, Jr., An Officer and A Gentleman, The Punisher) returns to kick butt, this time with fellow exhibition fliers Horikoshi (Sonny Chiba, The Street Fighter), Palmer (Chris Cazenove), and Leichman (Horst Bucholtz) who put on air shows in authentic and semi-authentic WWII planes. Sinclair also has a 'day job' at an air force base which is due to be closed. When one of his younger colleagues loses his plane and the wreckage is found to have been stuffed with cocaine, Chappy goes into action. Meanwhile, in Peru - where all of this will ultimately lead - our female lead, Anna (Rachel McLish, Getting Physcial) escapes imprisonment by an ex-Nazi drug-lord who has taken over her small town. A quarter of the way through the film, these two plots coalesce in explosive aerial fashion.
